Giving Hearts Day


Giving Hearts Day is February 9th, one of the biggest giving days for North Dakota and North West Minnesota. Founded in 2008, Giving Hearts Day is a 24-hour event for charities in North Dakota and northwest Minnesota. Giving Hearts Day provides a platform for charities to fund their missions each year. As the longest-running giving day in the country, Giving Hearts Day has helped participating charities raise more than $138 million since its founding. It's not just a day, though. It's a year-round effort. Using skills taught by Dakota Medical Foundation, Alex Stern Family Foundation, and Fargo-based Impact, charities build a fundraising system to use on Giving Hearts Day, the "Super Bowl" of giving in the Upper Midwest. It has become the region's day to feed the hungry, nurture the elderly, and educate tomorrow's leaders.

Any nonprofit in North Dakota and Northwest Minnesota with a 501(c)(3) designation can apply for Giving Hearts Day participation. All applicants are reviewed to ensure that each organization is a valid nonprofit and is prepared to run a successful Giving Hearts Day campaign. Over 41,000 donors gave on Giving Hearts Day 2022 and World-class fundraising training, coaching, and resources from Impact.
